Spatially separating Covid from non-Covid

During the first months of the Covid-19 pandemic, crisis management and fast decision-making regarding infrastructural adaptations were key as hospitals faced major challenges while attempting to ensure optimal care. This study aims to gain insight into what spatial adaptations were made, and how these were decided about.  The  study relies on interviews with and documents from representatives of technical services, facilities and planning departments in six general hospitals in Flanders.

The study is conducted by Margo Annemans, Pleuntje Jellema and Ann Heylighen, and supported by the Industrial Research Fund of KU Leuven.
